Sheen doesn't want Harper as legacy

Charlie Sheen has said he does not want to be remembered for his role as Charlie Harper in hit show Two And A Half Men.

The 46-year-old actor was fired from the show in 2011 after making derogatory comments about the series' creator Chuck Lorre. His character was killed off and he was replaced by Ashton Kutcher.

Charlie has now created his own comedy show Anger Management, which airs on FX in June, and told Access Hollywood he hopes that is what people will remember him for.

He said: "I can't have [what happened with Two And A Half Men] be my legacy. Something like this is such a better opportunity to really go out on a real strong note."

The Wall Street star also revealed he feels more committed to his family now, than his career as an actor.

Charlie said of his five children: "They're doing great. That's why I'm excited about this show possibly being my swan song. Then I can leave that behind and just be a full-time dad."

But he added he isn't ready to throw in the towel for good.

He said: "I'm not saying I'm done forever. I mean, I [just want to] take some time off and do some movies or more TV. I don't know. I don't really have a plan."

Charlie said he bore no grudges against the cast and crew of Two And A Half Men, but is happy to have left the show behind him.

He said: "I'm in an environment, finally, that is about celebrating the work and the people that do it and I'm surrounded by experts on every front. It's really exciting."
